Some older people fall between "categories"--those who are not well enough to go into residence, but are not ill enough to go into a nursing home. This film follows the slow and painful itinerary of an aged couple with diminishing capacities, both physical and mental, who are facing a complexity of problems by no means unique. Adélard Levasseur ends his days in a hospital for the chronically ill, embittered and despairing at having been removed from his home. (French with English subtitles.)
